Whether you add a sunroom, family room or other room to your house, being cozy in your new area no matter the weather is key. However, they can make a unique problem for comfort. This is because adding ductwork is costly. And that your heating and cooling system may not be able to handle the heightened load, since it was sized without considering the addition.
One of the most affordable options is to add a mini-split. This system delivers energy-efficient heating and cooling, with no ductwork needed. Learn more about mini-splits and how adding one to your addition can be a fantastic solution.

Heat pumps are extremely energy efficient as they shift heat to make your space more comfortable. In reality, many have achieved ENERGY STAR® certification, which could make you eligible for extra rebates and decrease your utility expenses for many years.
Another special feature includes zoned heating and cooling. As each room often has an individual indoor unit, you can select your preferred temperature from room to room. As an example, a mini-split AC is very helpful if you have a room with special temperature needs, including a home gym.
Getting a mini-split system is worth it for areas that don’t have ductwork. Here are a few reasons why it’s smarter than extending ductwork and relying on your current heating and cooling system.
Like traditional systems, mini-splits are available in varying sizes based on the square footage they’ll be heating and cooling. Here are three of the most popular sizes:
